Travis rappelling down this classic pitch.
A very long corner. This pitch is super classic even thought it has some preamble to it that isn't very fun. Start up the blocky finish, gain the rambling wavy corner and enjoy it to the top. Sometimes the last move to the anchor can be pretty wet.
The first time I was on this climb I was just learning how to trad climb and I placed well over 18 pieces of gear, the next time I was on it I placed 8.
It has a 10c second pitch that I haven't climbed, so I'm not describing it.
The big left facing corner left of Conneticut Cracks, Old Town, and London Bridges.
Gig stnd. rack, lots of runners.
A very long corner.
The 2nd pitch.

probably because the contributor only described the 1st pitch, but he did say the 2nd pitch goes at 5.10

The second pitch is indeed 5.10, and it's wonderful. The 5.10 crux is, well, not where you think it will be. I remember leading this pitch in 1983 with nothing but straight-sided stoppers and hexes---my palms are sweating while I type this. Bring little cams and don't miss this pitch!

Sometimes you climb a feature that's just so nice but only 20 feet long. Chlitlin Corner at around 200 feet may still leave you wanting more, but you can't say its too short!

Second pitch is 10a, not 10c, and is great. Actually everything on this wall is great.

Definitely do the second pitch. The first pitch is a fun cruise, the second pitch is a delight. The rap off is a little awkward going from the P1 anchors to the intermediate anchors out and climber's left. You could avoid this with a double rope rap, but we got off with three single (60m) rope raps.
